i own a 6 mp canon powershot A540 and i really want a wide angle lens so i can fit more into the picture. I was looking on amazon and i found a lens that fits and its pretty cheap. with both of these lenses i know that it blocks the flash on the camera, but i dont use flash very much so thats not a problem. which one of these should i get? and what are the differences between the 2 of them? also i dont know if this is in the right spot, but i figured it would be best here.

A fisheye lens is used in a lot of skateboard photography/video. It has that rounded look. Its a fun effect but a standard wide angle is probably what you're looking for.

wide angle is more just wide, fisheye is usually wider and characterized by more rounded distortion.
